Year 5 Debate In Council Chambers
The Year 5 Debating Team had a fantastic morning out at the Hambleton Council building debating against teams from across the region. the matter up for debate was whether school uniforms should be banned or should remain a staple of school life. Whilst we didn’t get to a final decision on this important issue, eyes were opened to the merits of both sides of the argument. Thomas and Brooke both gave fantastic speeches and answered questions from their opponents with impressive levels of calm (this portion of the day also featured a mic drop moment from Thomas, and Brooke leaving many questioners speechless with her answers – well done both!) Neither Brooke, nor Thomas could have performed so well without the backing of their teams, Ben and Scarlett backed up Thomas with facts and figures to help their arguments while Freya and Luke backed up Brooke, both teams posed cunning questions to their opponents and left many a speaker lost for words.
It was a brilliant day out and all 6 children should be very proud of their efforts over the last couple of weeks.
